United By Blue Delaware River Cleanup – Waterway Cleanups Tour

September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join United By Blue for a community cleanup of the Delaware River in honor of International Coastal Cleanup Day! We’ll clean the riverbanks along the Frankford Boat Launch and waterfront trail, and record data on the trash that we collect. The data will be submitted to the Ocean Conservancy, along with other cleanups held on ICC, to further marine debris research globally.

After a morning of cleaning our waterways and outdoor recreation areas, we’ll enjoy complimentary snacks and hear from our event partners about the great work they’re doing to keep our waterways clean year-round. We’ll also play cleanup games and give away United By Blue prizes.

Help us bring our mission of removing a pound of trash from waterways for every product we sell to life by joining us for this cleanup. We’ll provide cleanup supplies, water and reusable water bottles, and snacks. You bring sturdy shoes, long pants, and your friends!
